Happy Birthday

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hi Everyone!
So, wasn't that a GREAT release last week at My Craft Spot??? Wow, Kimberly and Robin did a fabulous job on the new stamps and die sets!! I had a blast creating with them! If you missed last week, be sure to pop over to My Craft Spot's store and check out the amazing new sets! They are all available for purchase now, yeah!

Today is my DT day over at My Craft Spot and would like to share a birthday card with you using the Big Words metal die.
I started with white card stock for the base of my card followed by panel for the base layer. The base layer is pattern paper from MME Hootenanny collection. I cut a black panel and embossed it with the SU chevron folder and added a little grass border along the bottom using the Fancy Edges metal die. 
The adorable elephant is cut at 3 1/2 from the Birthday Bash cartridge (one of my favorites) plus the layers. The cute little face is stamped with PK Sweet On You stamp set. I cut the heart balloon from the Create A Critter cartridge at 2 1/2 and tied it to the elephant with Black Jute String and tied a bow. The Happy Birthday is from the new Big Words metal die. Isn't that awesome? I just LOVE this die!! 
The inside of the card is stamped with the Big Sentiments 2 stamp set. I also have a little treat box.....I cut a small belly band to fit it and added a fun edge using a Martha Stewart punch. The doily tag is from the Tiny Doilies metal die I stamped the sentiment with the Stamping All Around Spring stamp set. Finished with tying on some Black Jute String and tied a bow.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Bitten by the Bug 2 Challenge-Use a favorite cricut cartridge
2.) Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #200 Pick a Holiday
3.) Craftin Desert Diva Linky Party-Birthday theme
